If you’ve never used a serum before, you might think of them as gimmicky and an unnecessary part of the skin care routine. Investigate and you’ll soon learn serum for glowing skin is a must.
According to IntotheGloss, serum is a skincare product you can apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturising with the intent of delivering powerful ingredients directly into the skin. Serum is particularly suited to this task because it is made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. This makes them a great tool for targeting specific skincare concerns, like wrinkles.
A serum doesn’t need to be used every day, but as a morning or evening time treatment a few times a month, depending on the condition of the skin. Serums help give your skin a fresher, younger and healthier appearance.
Serums are similar to moisturisers in that they contain a lot of the good stuff, but without all the heavy ingredients. Used in small amounts, they contain a higher concentration of active ingredients all in a water-based formula.
So like moisturisers, they feed the skin. However, they are also used to firm, smooth and decrease the size of pores in the skin too.
Serums shouldn’t be relied on to moisturise completely but should be used in conjunction with moisturisers.
